How does it work: The solar-powered energy is stored, transferred to a refrigerator and then used to produce ice. The ice then is put into a special designed milk container without having direct contact with the milk. By that, it cools down the milk through additional isolation to around 20 degrees over a long period.
Outreach: Started as a pilot project in Tunisia, will it be successfull if tranferred to Kenia? The low cost, decentralized nature and rather simple technology seems to enable a successfully implementation.
Therefore, let's hope that the local kenian population soon will be able to enjoy nicely-cooled milk and develop further milk-processing industries through the improved local, small-scale production opportunities granted by this system.
